Mapura Studios is offering Open Studio Art Therapy sessions for teenagers at the PHAB Takapuna Club Rooms from Term 3. The teens programme has seen stunning results in the five years it has been running in St Lukes Auckland and Mapura is now bringing it to the North Shore. For teenagers of all abilities aged 12 (approx) plus. particular provision is made for teens with diverse and complex needs. All are Welcome!
The Arts Therapists and Art Facilitators work to progress individual art making skills and abilities and to extend group-held, collective themes of interest on which to base subject matter for art-making and creative projects. All sorts of novel ideas and innovative creations occur.
A supportive and safe environment is provided for teens to form sound and healthy relationships with one another. They are encouraged and guided in how to share and explore their creative ideas - much conversation and creative interaction between group members take place. This programme is specifically tailored to the individual needs and abilities of each teenager in the group.
